England's "vampire craze" is causing much vexation for Ian Ashton, the Lord Vampire of London.
The whole of the haute ton is reading sensational books. Between Dr. John Polidori's "The Vampyre" and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, every duke, duchess, and earl is obsessed with killers in our midst. I'm the Lord Vampire of London, and everywhere I go, I'm treated with suspicion, as if people are doomed by my touch. To quell gossip, I'm now stuck attending tedious balls, lingering in front of mirrors, and eating an obscene amount of garlic. If that weren't annoying enough, my neighbor, Angelica Winthrop, has literary aspirations and has been sneaking into my house at night to snoop.
I'm hungry, tired, and fed up, and it's time for this beautiful intruder to learn a few things about vampires…

The nobles of 1821 London are swooning over lurid tales of undead creatures. Ian Ashton, Duke of Burnrath, is rumored to be a vampire; he needs to distract the ton before they realize the rumors are true. Feminist bluestocking Angelica Winthrop, who wants to be a gothic novelist like Mary Shelley, breaks in to Ian's house looking for inspiration but ends up bitten. Remorseful and attracted, Ian proposes marriage to quiet the gossip both face after word gets around that they were alone in his house. A disloyal vampire and a pesky vampire hunter threaten their happy ending. Taking inspiration from Dr. John Polidori's 1819 novel, The Vampyre, Ann's breezy and entertaining debut features strong prose and interesting characters but relies heavily on shopworn genre tropes and stereotypes that weaken the original elements. Two sequels are in the works, offering opportunity for Ann's storytelling to match her wit and humor.
This author has written an entertaining fantasy romance. I liked the hero and heroine. Little Loki was fun and a hero as well. 😊
